Kai Havertz Childhood Story:

For Biography Starters, the German bears the nickname ‘Alleskönner’, which means ‘Jack of all trades’.

Kai Havertz was born on the 11th day of June 1999 to his mother, a lawyer and father, a policeman, in the city of Aachen, Germany. He was born as the third child and second son out of the union between his parents.

Kai Havertz grew up alongside his siblings, a sister named Leah and a brother who goes by the name Jan.

As the last-born child of the Havertz family, Kai was treated with absolute care. Also, a strong emotional bond exists between him and every one of his households.

Despite the demanding occupation of Kai Havertz’s parents (Law and Policing), football has always been the joint equation shared among members of his household. We’ll shed more light on this in the later part of our Bio.

Kai Havertz Family Background:

First and foremost, he comes from a comfortable middle-class household.

Back in the days, a person working as an attorney in Germany would typically earn around €86,040 per year (Salary-Explorer report).

This is an estimation of Kai Havertz’s mother’s earnings. On the other hand (with his dad), the average salary for a German Police Officer is €32,500 (Pay-Scale report).

With these stats, you’ll agree with me that Kai Havertz’s parents, no doubt, operated what we refer to as a comfortable middle-class home.

Kai Havertz Family Origin:

The German national of white ethnicity has his ancestry roots in the village of Mariadorf, just north of Aachen.

In case you didn’t know, Aachen is the westernmost city in Germany, located near the borders of Belgium and the Netherlands.

What no one has told you about Kai’s birthplace, Aachen:

Did you know?… The city was a victim of one of the World’s largest Urban Battles, often known as ‘The Battle of Aachen‘.

During World War II, the US defeated German forces in the city, making it the first city on German soil to ever get captured. That’s enough of history!

How Football Started for Kai Havertz:

Right from the onset, Policing and Law wasn’t just the major occupation in his family.

Kai Havertz’s parents also had one special person in their household (Kai’s Granddad, Richard) who did most of the taking care of him, who was labelled as the baby of the house.

Grandpa Richard was a former footballer and a coach who made the entire family fall in love with the game.

Did you know?… It wasn’t just his grandad Richard; even Kai Havertz’s dad was once involved in football (amateur level).

Truly, non-footballing activities didn’t cause much distraction, as everyone in the Havertz family was a football addict.

Kai Havertz Education:

Being a law enforcement officer with a busy schedule, Kai’s dad left much of the upbringing of his son to his own father, Richard.

When the time was right, Grandpa Richard introduced his grandson to the beautiful game.

Additionally, having the family home close to a football field used by a local team certainly helped ignite Kai’s passion for football.

Here is what the German once said about his Grandpa, Dad and brother, who helped him fall in love with the game.

“My grandpa really got me into playing football,” Havertz once told bundesliga.com. He continued…

He did helped me take my first steps. Obviously, my Dad and brother also did their bit to get me out there playing at an early age.

In my family, Everyone was football crazy, and we were just a football household.

We loved football and everything revolving around it. I grew up with the game and that’s how this passion developed.”

Early Career Life:

In the little village of Mariadorf, young Havertz will almost every day move 100 metres from his family home to go play football under Granddad’s guidance. Sometimes, both of them would practice at home or in their family’s garden.

At some point, it became natural for a 4-year-old Havertz to begin playing for his local team, Alemannia Mariadorf, after understanding the sport- all thanks to his grandfather, who kept it a must that Kai grew up to become a football player.

Perhaps you never know… Kai’s grandfather, Richard Havertz, was the long-time chairman of the youth club- Alemannia Mariadorf.

Even those who knew him have said he passed on his own gift for the game to his grandson. Because Kai was that good, he got positioned in an age group that was two years above his.

Kai Havertz Biography – Road to Fame Story:

By the time Havertz was aged nine, his family had initiated the process of contacting football teams where he could have a more competitive career, especially at a youth club outside the comforts of his home and his Grandpa’s club.

In 2009, at the age of 10, he joined Alemannia Aachen, the biggest club in his region.

The youngster only lasted for one year at Aachen, though, not because he wasn’t good enough, but because he had shown he was too good and above the level of the club.

At the time he began helping the club collect medals, football Scouts began taking Kai seriously.

The Bayer 04 Leverkusen Destiny:

While still at Alemannia Aachen, Kai had a performance against Leverkusen, a feat that changed his destiny.

As expected, he was the man of the match. His opponent’s youth coach, Slawomir Czarniecki, saw himself initiating a transfer for Kai.

Kai (a year younger than his teammates) was playing for Alemannia Aachen’s under-12s against Leverkusen’s under-12s.

After scoring three goals in an 8-3 demolition, Slawomir Czarniecki, the youth coach at the Bay Arena, did everything possible for Leverkusen to sign him.

Kai Havertz Biography – The Success Story:

While at the age of 11, Kai saw himself becoming a Bayer 04 Leverkusen player. Right from his first day, he began to make a mark with the club- demonstrating top-notch skills and unrivalled abilities.

His efforts earned him the nickname ‘Alleskönner’, meaning Jack of all trades, and at that time, he was very short.

Growing tall mixed with sweet fame:

Early on in his Bayer 04 Leverkusen career, the left-footed playmaker had overcome every obstacle in his path except one thing- his body – which made life so hard for him.

The Kai came through teething and overgrowth problems of seeing, especially his legs growing longer and too fast.

Even with that, the gifted Youngster still helped his club win the German U17 title in 2016 (18 goals in 26 games).

Nine months after the triumph, Kai began playing in the first team alongside his partner in crime, Julian Brandt.

Upon his first game, Kai’s teammates became astonished- seeing that they had a rare talent right in front of their eyes.

At 19, he helped push Bayer Leverkusen into the Champions League and at 21, he became a true leader- wearing the captain’s armband.

At the time of writing Kai Havertz’s Bio, he had just become Frank Lampard’s Chelsea sixth signing after Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr.

No doubt, Chelsea fans in no time would see him showcase his astronomical talent. The rest, as we say, is now history.

“My secondary school exams came at the same time as playing in the German DFB Cup. I had an exam on Wednesday after an away game on a Tuesday evening.
